LP Website – Tom Fox Exhibition Award (2013 – 2017)
The Tom Fox Exhibition Award was established in 2012 to commemorate the life and untimely passing of Limerick based painter Tom Fox in September 2010. The award was devised with, and very kindly funded by the Fox family. A prolific artist, Tom exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally and a posthumous exhibition of his work sold out in its entirety.
This award was then created in Tom’s name, each year supporting a graduate painter through the provision of a prominent solo exhibition in a well-established gallery. Limerick Printmakers were extremely proud to be responsible for implementing this award, which ran very successfully over a period of five years. Through the award, the Fox family created a lasting legacy in Tom Fox’s name, one that greatly contributed to the careers of other talented printmaking graduates.

By creating this award, LP wished to acknowledge the evolving role of the curator and to provide a challenging, career expanding opportunity for a recent graduate.
